Smoothies are so flexible that you can still make a tasty smoothie even when you need to run out to the store for groceries. Just use whatever you have on hand.
Take this tasty creamy peanut green smoothie I made this morning.
I usually keep some veggies in the freezer to use when I’ve run out of fresh stuff. So I had plenty of greens.
Oats, peanut butter, dates and raw honey are staples in the larder, and I’m rarely without them. So there was the healthy fat, protein, fiber and little bit of extra sweetnesses, if needed.
For the liquid I used the last of a recent batch of homemade coconut milk.
And I love ginger tea, so there is usually some handy; that went in, too. Plus an extra piece of fresh ginger, if there is some, or powdered ginger, if not.
To make ginger tea, I pour boiling water into a jug containing sliced fresh ginger and chill when cool. You can drink it hot or chilled – very refreshing on a hot day. I leave the ginger in the jug/bottle so the flavor intensifies with keeping.

Awesome but what are the Fat grams. If you tend not to burn fat you get fat. Especially menopausal women.
Losing weight is hard. Being overweight is hard too. Choose your hard.
Hi Elizabeth, remember not all fats are created equal… we aim to include healthy fats, which among other things help moderate sugar absorption. The avocado and nut butter in this recipe provide healthy fats.
Healthy fats also tend to include a higher proportion of saturated or monounsaturated fats or be higher in omega-3s, and can accelerate shedding body fat.
However, if you are concerned, we always recommend you seek the advice of your medical professional.
